Jason asked me to post some of my favorite poems on the site. Poetry is something I've yet to get comfortable with. There's a lot out there I like that I couldn't possibly speak intelligently about, and even more that I might like if I could possibly understand it.
So take that for what's it's worth. I won't begin to explain why the poems listed below affect me; they just do.
The Night I was Going to Die
There are many others I can add to the list - there's a chance I'll get in here later and add some more.
